I just found out that we can take over any accounts by just letting our target user visit a link. Yes, just a link. We can change any info , even password via CSRF Attack. There is no authentication token passed which restricts CSRF for execution.

Account Takeover Scenario:

  • We send CSRF to users and update info and change email addresses.
  • After executing the victim email changed .
  • Lastly we reset the password to my own email address which i update on victim as CSRF.
  • Account compromised.
